Record your Pollinator Friendly Areas

Record your Pollinator Friendly Areas

The Channel Island Pollinator Project are delighted to introduce a new tool which allows you to record and view areas that have been set aside as Pollinator Friendly Areas.

Have you created a fantastic pollinator friendly area? If you have sowed wildflower seeds, planted flowering plants for pollinators, allowed an area to grow wild or sowed your field using an insect pollinator friendly seed mix, please join in and record your area and add it to our public map.

There is no limit on size - it could be a tiny patch on your street that you and your neighbours are proud of, or it could be a wildflower meadow you have planted, we want to know about all of them. We would love to know about all types of areas that are free to visit by the public and private sites as well.

Nina Cornish, Research Ecologist, Government of Jersey says “We want all Island residents to Bee Friendly and set aside at least 10% of your garden or land for pollinators. We depend on pollinators for much of our food, so supporting them with more wild spaces in both our rural and urban areas will help halt their decline.”

There are six simple Bee Friendly actions you can do;

The Channel Island Pollinator Project Website has lots of great advice and resources on what to do and how to get involved. If you have any questions regarding this new tool for mapping pollinator friendly areas please contact the Alderney Group, Guernsey Group or Jersey Group.


Project Background

The Pollinator Project was originally setup as a Société Guernesiaise initiative by Barry Wells and Vanessa Crispini-Adams in Guernsey in 2017. The project really captured the imagination of delegates during the 2018 Inter-Island Environment Meeting (IIEM) in Jersey. Following the IIEM it was decided that the Pollinator Project was such a fantastic initiative that it should become a Channel Island project and be rolled out across the islands.

Numerous organisations and interested parties are now working in partnership to deliver the Pollinator Project across the Channel Islands. By all working together towards a common goal it is hoped that the current decline in insect pollinators in the Channel Islands can be reversed and their populations conserved and enhanced for the future.
